My Little Margie
I had heard of this show before, But it's much better than I expected. Featuring a parody of "Captain Video", a reference to Arthur Godfrey, and Not-Quite-Subtle acting, This is Cheese at it's very best. This show is cheesy, corny, silly but also witty, clever and FUN!
I'm not saying "My Little Margie" is Quality TV, But it's FUN, Which instantly makes it better than everything on MTV today!
So relax, and hopefully you too will enjoy this cheesy and charming 50's sitcom, which may not be great, but certaining is entertaining.
If you don't like it, Check out "Studio One", a 50's TV series which *is* quality television.
